Day One Lyrics

Well, I wish I had a short term memory

Wish the only thing my eyes could see

Was the future burning bright right in front of me

But I can’t stop looking back

 

Yeah, I wish I was a perfect picture of

Somebody who’s never not good enough

I try to measure up but I mess it up

And I wish I wasn’t like that

 

I wish I wasn’t wishing anymore

Wish I could remember that nobody’s keeping score

I’m tired of throwing pennies in a well

I gotta do something

Here goes nothin’

 

It’s day one of the rest of my life

It’s day one of the best of my life

I’m marching on to the beat of a brand new drum

Yeah, here I come

The future has begun

Day one

 

Well, every single day Your grace reminds me

That my best days are not behind me

Wherever my yesterday may find me

Well, I don’t have to stay there

 

See my hourglass is upside down

My someday soon is here and now

The clock is tickin’

And I’m so sick and tired of missing out

 

It’s day one

And here comes the sun

 

Every morning, every morning

Every morning, mercy’s new

Every morning, every morning

Every morning, I will fix my eyes on You

Every morning, every morning

Every morning, mercy’s new

Every morning, every morning

Sun’s coming up, the beginning has begun

 

Starting over, I’m starting over

Starting over, I’m starting over, starting now

I’m starting over

Starting over, I’m starting over

Starting over

Starting over, starting now

I’m starting over

One story about "Day One"

  • Kathy Miller says:

    Took my future grandson home tonight. On the way he told me that he had made the decision to follow Christ this morning in church, and he was calling today the first day of his new life. On the way home, I heard this Matthew West song for the first time. Wow! It expresses perfectly some of the things that Zack had been saying to me. He’s a 21-year-old starting life over, and since he knows most of the songs and sings with them on 102.5, I’m sure he’ll hear this one soon and be singing it with Matthew West! I did print out the words to share with him as well. Thank you for allowing the Lord to use your station!!! Kathy Miller
